Will Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn have to battle it out?
Now that Sanjay Dutt is out of jail, he is busy hearing scripts and he just can’t wait to start his Bollywood journey again. Out of the many films that he has been approached for, Dutt seems to have liked a script based on the historical battle of Saragarhi. This battle between Sikhs and Afghans is legendary, and is a story that lends itself to great cinema. Dutt was apparently approached to play the role of the Sikh leader, Havildar Ishar Singh, and he was impressed by the scale of the film. It is said that popular Punjabi filmmaker, Rohit Jugraj will be helming this project. Unknown to Dutt and Jugraj, another writer had approached Ajay Devgn with the same subject, and as expected Devgn also got excited about the project.
Rumour has it that both Dutt and Devgn don’t want to let go of this film, despite the fact that it will be a big budget extravaganza and will need a director who can pull off something as ambitious. While Dutt’s version apparently is called ‘Battle of Saragarhi,’ Devgn’s version might be named ‘Sons of Sardars 2’. Thanks to the secretive nature of Bollywood, these developments have been under the wraps, and both parties might have to battle it out at some point of time. The ‘Shivaay’ actor has already burnt his fingers once, as his film, ‘Shahid Bhagat Singh’ released almost simultaneously with two other films on the same martyr. If the makers choose to be practical, one of them might have to let go of this biopic. We can only wait to see how things unfold.
